Identifying and preventing business fraud

There are two types of business fraud: internal and external. Internal fraud is committed by the people that work for you, like managers and employees. It happens every day, like if someone steals pens or post-it notes. But it can also sink a small business if an employee takes the bank deposits or steals your clients. External fraud is committed by outside entities like contractors and vendors who over-charge. Small businesses are susceptible to both but because of employee access to your business assets and records, internal fraud can be far more serious.

What damages can you recover from a breach of contract? Part 2

Contract disputes are an inevitable part of business. No matter how good of a "deal maker" you may be, circumstances change and people move on. Hopefully you are able to resolve this difference amicably but if you are not, then your business could face serious economic consequences depending upon the nature of the breach. It is in these situations that recovering damages is critical. A previous post discussed how you can recover compensatory and nominal damages, the two primary types of damages. This post will discuss the less common but still important punitive and liquidated damages.

What are other forms of compensation for a breach of contract?

Contracts are formed when two or more parties agree to an exchange. It includes reciprocal duties of payment and performance of the agreed task. Usually it is money for goods or money for some sort of services. Generally these contracts are kept and everyone walks away happy. But what happens if you perform the service and the other party refuses to pay? This is called a breach of contract and there are several remedies available. This article will go over some of those remedies.

What damages can you recover from a breach of contract? Part 1

Contracts are the bread and butter of business development. Unfortunately, economic circumstances change, businesses evolve and sometimes those contracts are breached. A breach of contract occurs when someone fails to perform a part of the contract. Generally, it is one of those "you will know it when you see it" moments.
